African Cup: Burkina Faso is third eliminated from the Algeria group


The Burkina Faso national team joined its previous rivals in Group D, the national team and its Mauritanian counterpart, after being eliminated from the round of 16 of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast, by Mali with a score of 2-1.

French coach Hubert Velaud’s squad was unable to match its rival, Mali, in the match hosted by Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium in the city of Korhogo, on Tuesday.

Defense is the weak point of the “Horses”

Burkinabe goalkeeper Hervé Kofi conceded an early goal in the match (minute 3) from fellow defender Emond Tapsouba, who made a mistake when trying to clear the ball from the first touch and put it into his team’s net.

The Malians then dominated the entire period of the first stage, and almost doubled the score had it not been for the haste of attacking duo Lassine Senayoko and Adama Traoré in ending the attacks.

The Malian team corrected its performance at the beginning of the second half, taking advantage of poor monitoring of the opponent’s defense, and Senayoko scored the second goal just two minutes after the teams returned from the locker rooms.

This is the sixth goal Burkina Faso has conceded in the last three matches.

The Prokinabes’ delay in the result did not prevent them from trying to respond with organized attacks, which bore fruit after the team benefited from the third penalty kick in the current African Cup finals as a result of Libyan referee Ibrahim Moataz’s inspection of the video technology.

It was successfully executed by captain Bertrand Traoré in the 57th minute, reducing the difference and raising his personal tally to three goals since the start of the competition.

Most of the “Horses” team’s attempts to score a tie after this goal collided with the resilience of the Mali Eagles, who maintained their lead and won qualification to the quarter-finals, where they are expected to meet Ivory Coast, next Saturday, at the Al-Salam Stadium in the city of Bouaké.
